LA SASTRERÍA 100% MADE OF GARNACHA
For 2018, we managed to find the winning wine in Spain. This vineyard created a label exclusively for METRO named La Sastrería, meaning the tailor shop. These wines are made out of Garnacha grape, a variety that is very fashionable at the moment. The label has a range of three wines: Red, White, and Rosé.
